  • My 95 S2 Avant Project. LZ5T Coolness

    While working on my coupe, my eye kept drifting to the S2 Avant due to the lovely examples shown on the forums. Being in no rush I put out the feelers looking for one last year. Yesterday brought me the news of this car and today I picked it up. It's a 1995 LZ5T S2 Avant, 96k miles with FSH. sans AirCon, with sunroof. Recaro interior.










    Replacement wing provided.

    Mechanically it's very solid. Pulls well, bit of brake work needed. Cosmetically its actually in poor shape.

    Strictly speaking, It needs:

    Tailgate, Front bumper (has a bad crease near driver side wheel)
    Both drivers side doors need work. Bottom door trims all round.
    Drivers door trim has been rivited on, hoping not too much rusting occured.
    Dent under rear left indicator.

    Before too much work commences, I hope to get it registered and VRT'd . A little bit of paper work to sort out and then we should see things moving.

    Guess whos been bitten by the quattro bug

    Good luck with the project, and the never ending battle to keep them all going at the same time. Something i have never managed to do, there is always one of them parked up in need of work.

            Hi guys,
            IrishS2 bought the car from me. I bought it in december with an S2 saloon project in mind, but after getting it home started to think it might be too good to break.
            A recent "kick in the ****" meant I wouldn't be doing anything with the car in the near future. Im delighted that its gone to a fellow audi nut who will give it the tlc it deserves. Thanks again Eric and a pleasure dealing with you. Best of luck with the car.

            Cheers,
            John.

                Thanks for the comments guys, dest, I think so too PM Sent.

                This is where I plan to take it as mechanically I think it is worth it:




                The more I see that colour the more I love it. I was told of the bodywork issues before seeing it in person and gave me ideas to paint it brill. black but it is staying that colour.


                And thanks again John for answering my plea I have great plans ha! Also will have to touch base again with you regarding paper work etc ,but no panic.

                      Glad someone saved this car, i've got a load of pictures of it that I got shown when I first heard it might be for sale.

                        Fair play that has to be the most rusty front wing Ive ever seen wow! When replacing if you buy new beware of the fact the Avant wings come with no indicator holes in which is a real PITA! I did both wings and didnt bother with side repeaters, have just left wiring available so I can add some temporary stick on ones if they spot it on MOT! Nice colour buy the way! Good luck with it, looks like you got a nice set of seats with it too

                          Shamefully its been so long since I got this car, and nothing has been done, apart from buying bits and pieces for it over time
                          Over the last 3 weeks I have started tackling it and today starts the major stripdown of the car.






                          This is how it looked this morning. Not pretty.



                          Front off


                          Air and water hoses off. There is massive play on the turbo shaft, more than likely the source of my oil burning.


                          All 5 plugs were like this.



                          Compression test revealed all 5 cylinders to be the same.




                          This is kinda worrying. Looks like sand or corrosion dust on the inside or the intercooler.


                          These oil leaks will be dealt with during engine rebuild.


                          Will also need to replace this.




                          Before it was removed.


                          Only had one stubborn bolt



                          All for corners pretty much look like this, I really hate salt.


                          Tomorrow should see the front subframe and suspension come off.

                            Wow! Intense! I plan on doing my shocks and subframes and poly mount it all next year. The bay and all the covers in yours look like they have seen better days. Good luck mate!

                              Only the oil cooler shroud looks to be a total write off, good luck.
